Our dining room has a warm, comfortable feeling as well and you can hear jazz here on weekend nights. Breakfast and lunch are served daily and dinner is available six nights a week, so the restaurant serves both business and casual crowds. Our neighborhood bistro offers an upscale menu and delivers great food and friendly surroundings. Outdoor patio, take-out, jazz entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights.
My boyfriend and I went there for Valentine s Day dinner. We did have a reservation at 7:45p. It took about 15 minutes to be seated, which I expected especially for that night. We were seated at a small table smashed right in between two other couples. It took about 25 minutes to get our glasses of wine. We didn t get out of the restaurant until 9:30p. I am a server and also worked that day earlier. I expect crowds and waits on holidays. I was the most astounded by the horrible to mediocre food that was planned and prepared. The 4-course meal was over $50 per person, which I even expect for such a day. Why the kitchen manager would plan such a disaster of a meal for that price, I don t understand. I was excited about picking two different selections for almost every course so we could be able to sample each. The appetizer was supposed to be a artichoke, spinach, and scallops with pita dish and I didn t taste any scallops. There were about 4-6 little pita chips that went with the small dish of dip. We got a caesar salad and red pepper bisque next. The soup was in a small bowl, cold, and tasted like it came from a can. The caesar salad was certainly not that. They ran out of caesar dressing and it was some shredded up and wilted lettuce with almond slivers and a small strawberry sliced in half..oh, yeah and a stale stub of bread. For the meal, we got beef tenderloin and bbq salmon. Each were served with mashed potatoes and vegetable which were dried out and flavorless. Both meats were pretty tasty and the potatoes were but it all tasted like it had been dried out on a counter or a window for some time. We were going to get a vanilla cake and a chocolate cake but they ran out of vanilla so we both got chocolate. It was pretty good. I was thankful that the manager had agreed beforehand to let me use my restaurant.com coupon for that night or there would have been a major problem. Like I said, I m a server myself and rarely complain. I understand the wait and the slow coming food and drinks bc the server was overwhelmed. I do not understand why this was the planned Valentine s Day 4-course meal. I have been to Brutti s several times before and loved it, especially their Sunday brunch. I have raved about it often. I don t know if the owner has changed but this was unacceptable and sadly disappointing.
What an horrific experience, I don’t mind spending money on good food. With that being said, here you pay $$$$$ prices for a $$ quality. That s just the beginning. The staff is rude, service is Slow which wouldn t be bad if the food was hot and fresh it wasn t. I would recommend everyone avoid this place !
I went with my family during Portsmouth restaurant. Worst Restaurant week experience ever! The service was terrible. After being seated, it took about 10 minutes to be seen. All the meals, except the salad, took FOREVER and were cold. The waiter was not attentive. We would see him in intervals, anything between 10 – 15 minutes. We order at 7:15 and did not receive our entrée until 8:40. We noticed other customers not being attended too. Totally unacceptable!!! The restaurant was not even packed. There were empty tables scattered throughout. The waiter apologized at the end of the night and stated that restaurant week had been a disaster. I do not know if this is an every weekend type of experience for others. It was my first time there. Take your business elsewhere for Portsmouth restaurant week!
We went on a Wednesday night. The atmosphere was wonderful and it was not too crowded. I believe it all starts with the front of the house staff and the Hostess was charming and did not skip a beat seating us when we were a little early. The waitress was polite and informative about the entrees. She was attentive through this whole experience. The Brisket was divine!! It was tender enough to cut with a fork. Remember to leave a little room for dessert because the Cheesecake was delightful. Cost for two with a tip was about $70.00.
We ate here recently- had chunky chicken salad sandwhich. Not only expensive but mostly cartlige. Not a pleasant meal. It had an old taste- like it had been sitting in some dark liquid for days. They paired that with a handfull of broken up potato chips- and charged over $11. I work hard for my money- I expect the restaurant I am paying to work hard too. I wouldnt recommend it to anyone.
